Atomic Absorption (AA) Spectroscopy
Efficient, accurate, and cost-effective
If you seek a truly cost-effective solution for efficient, accurate trace elemental analysis, look no further than the Thermo Scientific™ iCE™ 3000 Series AA spectrometers. With dedicated flame, furnace or combined flame and furnace options, these fast, easy-to-use and fully automated AA analyzers offer refreshingly good value for your money.
A complete solution for laboratories performing primarily flame analysis with occasional furnace samples.
Ideal for laboratories facing challenging detection limits.
Ideal for high throughput environments with a requirement for quick and regular flame and furnace analysis.
The most commonly used technique, flame AAS is compact, cost-effective, and highly suited to liquid or dissolved samples containing target analytes. As only a small portion of the sample ultimately arrives at the flame due to the aerosolizing process, flame AAS provides a relatively high interference removal, resulting in reliable accuracy. Ideal for trace elemental determination in the mg L−1 range and lower for some elements.
A highly robust technique, furnace AAS is capable of analyzing low volume liquid samples. Ideal for labs handling complex matrices on a routine basis, it provides very efficient interference removal, resulting in sensitivity of several orders of magnitude higher than flame AAS, enabling trace elemental determination in the low μg L−1 range and lower for some elements.
